(WATCH) Army Vet Takes Down Wal-Mart Thief

Quick word of wisdom to purse snatchers: If you’re going to act like an idiot, you better pray there isn’t an Army vet anywhere in the vicinity.

Rick White was shopping at a Wal-Mart in Manchester, NH this past Christmas time when he heard a woman scream that someone had snatched her wallet.

The perpetrator was a 24 year old named Alan White (no relation).

“He tried to hit and grab me. I sat on him until the police came. I brought his arm up and said, ‘give me your other hand or I’ll break this one.’ And he gave me his other hand, and that was it.” said Rick about the take down.
